Saving the planet seems to be very challenging and impossible thing. Surely, it is a difficult process, but it is actually very possible. Many people are aware of the dangers of the climate change. Others do not care and do not even want to learn about it. They just want to keep living in blissful ignorance. Unfortunately, some of those people who know that all people are in danger do not try to do something about it. To my mind, only all together we can save our planet. Most people also believe that one day somebody will come and say, 'I know how to save the planet!'. Certainly it should be a quick and easy way of doing it. However, actually many solutions to slowing down climate change are already right here, we just have to start using them.
Even if one person follows them, it is already a beginning. If you want to change the world, start with yourself first, as they say. So that is what I will do. I am going to start with myself and change my way of life. I will not reinvent the wheel; I just want to tell about some very simple ways one can help in reversing climate change right now. So here are some steps one can take to stop global warming.
First of all, carbon dioxide is a major contributor to climate change. And vehicles produce a large portion of the CO2. One way to help against climate change is to drive less when you can. Rather than using your own personal car, try to carpool. In other words, you can arrange with your friends or neighbors to take turns driving each other somewhere, for example, to work. Of course, it is not very convenient. You will not be able to go somewhere you want at any time. As for the carpool, all your movements will depend on other people, but you may use public transport in this case. And if the weather is good and your destination is close enough, you may even consider walking or riding a bike. It is also good for your health.
Secondly, there is a big problem with plastics today. One can help by recycling and reusing things when you can. Rather than throwing things away, see if you can find another use for them or donate them to charity if the product is still good. Recycling helps fight climate change because it takes less energy to make a product from recycled products than starting from scratch.
